FBI special agent Paige Carson hoped she’d be able to start a new life in small-town South Carolina. But when a senator’s sister is murdered and a blank postcard is left next to the body, Paige realizes that a killer from her past has found her—and is sending her a very personal message.
From the moment he hired her, FBI special agent in charge Sam McKade knew Paige was hiding something. Prompted by this recent threat, she finally opens up: one year ago, she caught the eye of suspected serial killer Todd Thames. Now he’s come back to pull her into his game, whether she wants to play or not.
As the danger increases, Paige and Sam give in to their growing attraction, and he vows to protect her no matter the cost. But the murderer will stop at nothing to get to his intended prey, and the strong arm of the law—and the shelter of her new love—may not be enough to save her.

Beneath her cheek, she felt Sam’s heart beating. Paige closed her eyes, counting each one of his treasured heartbeats. He couldn’t know how much he’d come to mean to her. She didn’t fully know herself. All she knew was that every one of her heartbeats was now tangled up with his.
They were damp with sweat and sticky from their lovemaking. The cool air now left a chill everywhere it touched.
Sam’s arms came around her. “You’re cold. Let’s go inside.”
She couldn’t go inside, not yet. She couldn’t be face-to-face with him. She had things to say, and if they were face-to-face, she would lose her nerve. He’d given her a precious gift tonight . . . one she wasn’t worthy of.
